Please help a non golfer choose a bag

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'd really appreciate any help here. I'm attempting to choose a bag for someone else and am unsure of what type to go with. Their membership this year includes a power cart, however, if I get a cart bag and future years they don't have the powercart, I'm assuming the bag will be useless? Is a carry/stand bag ok for a powercart? I obviously know nothing about golf. Would also like some recommendations if anyone has any. Thanks for any help.

I'm partial to the Ogio bags. They make a number of lightweight, comfortable, fully-featured stand bags in a bunch of colors.

 

I prefer to walk, and even golfers that have a cart pass will often carry their bag from the car to the clubhouse, or want to stand it up easily in their home, beside the practice putting green, at the practice range, etc. A stand bag gives you options, while a cart bag is pretty much best suited for use on a cart only. Cart bags do include more storage, though.

If you're really unsure, perhaps a gift certificate to Dick's or somewhere might be in order, and they can choose their own.

If carting is to be done often, that rules out most Sun Mountains. I liked the design of Ogio bags (not necessarily the colour schemes) and they'd fit on a cart much better. If they offered different feet (i.e. more surface area to prevent digging into the turf) I'd have gone that route.

 

I lke the gift certificate idea. Golf bags are like a good all weather jacket. The position and style of the pockets is important. I can get used to any bag, but some set ups that just don't work for me. If there's no room for a full set of irons or if I can't access the pockets while walking, it's off.

I have the ogio grom golf bag right now. plan on getting the ogio edge bag soon. having different brands of clubs, I went with a ogio. and their bags are well built. I agree with the color schemes are a little out there, but they do look cool.

 

ok, I would say go with a stand bag. it works great with everything.....walking, push cart, and powered cart.

 

if this is no surprise to the person you are buying the bag for, you could just take him to a local golf shop and allow him to choose one himself. or the gift card idea iacas has.

 

not trying to be rude, but what is the spending limit? could help with deciding.
